About Us

Founded in Wollongong, Accelo is a venture-backed SaaS company whose mission is to help service businesses succeed. Our clients are folks like digital agencies, engineers and consultants, and our leading business automation tool allows them to spend less time managing their work so they have more time doing the work they love. With so much of that work now remote, Accelo helps teams collaborate and master remote work by providing a single place to track and manage work.  

What you’ll be doing

You’ll be working directly with our Product, Design, and Engineering teams to help solve real user problems, impacting our user base across the globe. This role involves:

  • Providing career progression planning, technical leadership and guidance
  • Determining team priorities and roadmaps by working with our Product Team
  • Foster a culture of high performance and quality work in alignment with company values and culture

  • Advocating for your team regarding capacity, innovation and other initiatives
  • Communicate projects, endeavors, and progress within your team and to all relevant stakeholders
  • Mentoring and coaching one junior designer.

       Key Responsibilities will include:

  • Leading and assisting UX initiatives such as user interviews, surveys, and workshops, then translating gathered insights into personas, user stories, empathy maps etc.  
  • Translating UX insights into lo-fidelity designs (wifreames, basic prototypes etc) as proofs of concept for iterative feedback and exploration. Then moving into a detailed design phase where all permutations are developed, ensuring the correct use of design system patterns and best UI practices
  • Working closely with developers during the handoff phase, as they take your team’s designs and build them out on the Accelo platform; ensuring consistency along the way, and iterating with a team-based mindset when changes need to take place
  • Working closely with the US-half of the product design team/product managers in helping shape product vision, prioritising projects, and setting other initiatives
  • Through actively contributing to, evangelising, and curating the Accelo Design System, you will define and maintain the visual language that resonates with the target market by having a large influence of the UX and Design function

About you

  • 4-5+ years of full-time industry experience as a product designer
  • Ideally, experience working with a SaaS product 
  • Comfortable with modern design tools (Figma, Sketch, InVision, Adobe Creative Suite etc) and prototyping tools (of your choice)
  • Experience in solving complex business problems through design; working with ambiguity at the top of the funnel through to defined and elegant solutions with measurable results
  • A portfolio showcasing delivered work that reveals empathy for customers and an understanding of what their needs are
  • Experience working with collaborative, cross functional teams including engineers, quality assurance (QA), product managers, and senior leadership - with the ability to work autonomously as well

Why you’ll love it here

  • Get in on the ground floor of a growing company with a clear vision to scale in the Denver, San Francisco, & Australian area
  • 360 degree views of the Rockies, city, and skyline from the 12th floor of a centrally located downtown office with a world-class gym and bicycle storage (though we are currently working remotely due to COVID-19)

How to Apply

We’d love to hear from you! Share your resume, portfolio (PDF or website), and a cover letter that lets us know who you are and why you’re a great fit for us. All documents should be in PDF format. 

 A few things to note about the role and application process: 

  • We’re continuing to hire and onboard remotely due to COVID-19, so all interviews will be virtual. We will enjoy welcoming you into you back to our Denver office when it’s safe to be there! 
  • Initially this role will be 100% remote. Once we get over this crazy pandemic, we are open to a mix of permanent part time remote work combined with some regular weekly face to face office time or full time at the office. The ideal candidate will live close enough to Denver to make working from our office viable at some point. Talk to us - we will try to be flexible for the right person.
  • We are an equal opportunity employer, and warmly welcome diversity in our team. 

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

An Insider's view of Accelo

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Accelo really strives to make sure you feel a solid work-life balance. There is opportunity to work from home in all different types of situations. They also work with us when it comes to vacation- allowing us to take the trips of a lifetime. A lot of people live to work, so giving us a chance to take more time to appreciate life outside of work.

Hailey

People & Office Ops Coordinator

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

All departments actively work together, it’s necessary in order to support our customers across the platform. The willingness our team members exhibit, is truly amazing! When it’s time to collaborate, it’s helpful to gain the insights of other teams to better support my clients. Without a collaborative network, my job would be a lot more difficult.

Jon

Customer Support Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I’ve learned how to have transparent discussions with clients about their challenges! I listen intently and focus on solutions. I’ve learned that consultative communication helps me save time and helps my clients become more efficient. Lastly, I’ve discovered that oftentimes attitude separates a good outcome from a bad one.

Anthony

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I believe creativity exists within all of us and it lives in our unique strengths. I create a space for open communication where everyone’s voice matters. My team focuses on cultivating and trusting in their natural talents, then sharing them so everyone learns and benefits. The more free & authentic we can be, the more creativity naturally flows.

Nicole

SDR Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I make it clear that everyone is welcome at the “Support Fort.” I’m always available; I don’t want anyone to worry about sending a message late at night. Round-the-clock communication is necessary with the time difference across our offices. My team, and the rest of Accelo, knows that I’m genuine and transparent, and they can talk to me.
